Dates of existence



The Committee on Curriculum Policy and Instruction, successor to the Curriculum Committee, was created in 1979 to formulate policy and make recommendations on all matters concerning the improvement, evaluation, and coordination of curriculum, teaching and learning in the University. This included the examination of proposals for new degree and non-degree programmes. The Committee sets policy for and oversees the production of University calendars and fosters the rational coordination of resources for the teaching and learning goals of the university. There were several sub-committees of the Committee on Curriculum Policy and Instruction.
The Sub-Committee on Calendar Review had power to approve or reject any curricular proposal which was of a routine nature and to bring forth matters of policy recommendation to the Committee. In 1983 this Sub-Committee was re-named the Sub-Committee on Curriculum Review.
The Sub-Committee on General Education was charged with coordinating the efforts of the non-professional faculties and promoting general education at the University. The Sub-Committee on Teaching and Learning was responsible for investigating means of improving the teaching effort of the University, facilitating the exchange of ideas on instructional methods, and was to seek funds and allocate grants in support of instructional development from funds administered by the University. The Sub-Committee on Non-Degree Studies was to assume over-all responsibility for non-degree courses and programmes and to gather information about non-degree education throughout the University and in relation to the external community.
The Committee on Curriculum Policy and Instruction was absorbed by the Committee on Curriculum and Academic Standards in 1986.
